Traditional wedding photography captures the more formal moments of your wedding day, such as the exchange of vows, and cutting the cake, but even these can be captured very naturally, using depth of field.

Who pays for what in a UK wedding? Today, the average cost of a wedding is around £30,000 which is beyond the reach of most couples. Traditionally, the bride's family pays for the wedding reception (including the venue, food and drink) while the groom pays for the honeymoon. Just so you know. ; o }

Who pays for the honeymoon in a wedding? Today many modern couples save up for their honeymoon together or ask wedding guests to pay for certain parts as a gift. But traditionally it is the groom or his family's job to pay the full cost of the honeymoon.

Is one photographer enough for a wedding? Two photographers allow for one to be with the bride before the wedding and the other to photograph the groom before the wedding. If the Bride and Groom are getting ready in two separate locations it may be a good idea to have a second shooter or even Videographer.

Why are wedding photographers so expensive?
Equiptment is one of the reasons why wedding photography costs so much. And post production. I take dozens of images, seconds apart, to avoid missing any particular moment. I can take anywhere between 100 - 100's images per hour.

Access my wedding photography gallery

Request access to my protected galleries of wedding photography images from my various weddings. To display them here slows down my site loading time and Google will penalise this. I can't afford to upset the big G as I want first page rankings. Just submit your email and I will send you the link. I will NOT spam you. ONE email only. If my images don't win you, no amount of emails will.

With a lot of gifted photographers in Manchester, how do you know which one is the right one for you?
Do your homework by researching online, checking out our websites, galleries, etc. to find a photographer whose work delights you.
Next, make sure you click with them on a personal level! You want a photographer that you could see yourself being friends with. The more at ease you are with them, the more natural and authentic your wedding photography will be.
Once you've narrowed down your A-list based on my suggestions, ask each photographer the following questions to zero in on THE ONE for your wedding day.

Do you have my date available?
How far in advance do I need to book with you?
How long have you been in business?
How many weddings have you shot?
Have you done many that were similar to mine in size and style?

How would you describe your photography style (e.g. traditional, photojournalistic, fine-art, moody)?
How would you describe your working style?
TIP: The answer should help you determine whether this is a photographer who blends into the background and shoots what unfolds naturally, or creates a more visible presence by taking charge and setting up shots.
If your style is mostly candid, will I still get formal, posed portraits (and vice versa)?
Do you shoot weddings in digital, film format, or both?
Do you specialize in indoor or outdoor events, or both?
Do you have an updated portfolio I can review with examples of full weddings?
Can I give you a list of specific shots we would like?

Keeping Google happy is hard going!

Please ignore all this text which makes very little sense but Google demands a lot of written contant to rank my site.

How much of a deposit do you require and when is it due?
Do you offer payment plans?
What is your refund/cancellation policy?
Do you charge a travel fee and what does that cover?
What packages do you offer? This question covers things like:
• Are your packages customizable?
• How many hours are included in each package?
• Do you include engagement photos in your packages? Rehearsal dinners?
Can you put together slideshows to be shown during the cocktail hour/reception?
Do you provide retouching, color adjustment, or other corrective services?
How long after the wedding will I get the proofs? Will they be viewable online?
How many final images should I expect to receive?
Do you help with creating an album? Can I see some album designs?
What is the ordering process, and how long after I order my photos/album will I get them?
Will you give me the digital negatives or unlimited downloads so I can make my own prints?

Submit your details. I never spam.

Submit your email, or your full wedding day details. Mark will respond rapidly, within an hour or less usually. You will receive just ONE email reply. I like to think my wedding photography speaks for itself. If that doesn't convince you that I'm the wedding photographer to book, nothing will.


As your wedding is a glorious occasion. It is one of love and happiness. Your wedding should be the highlight of your life. The planning process can be daunting and straining, however. This article will give you great information and tips on how to make your wedding what you want it to be.

The right wedding dress can be quite expensive. When shopping for your dress, consider dresses that may not be categorized as a wedding dress. A bridesmaid dress may fit the bill and be much cheaper than a wedding dress. Even after some alterations to spruce it up, it can still prove a more affordable alternative to a dress that says wedding on the label.

If you're on a tight budget for your wedding, ask your family if they can help supply the flatware and plates for the tables at your reception. You can match only the items on a single table as most people won't be looking at what is on the other tables around them. Most people won't even notice! The best part is that you can send the dirty dishes home with them for cleaning, saving you additional cost for the extra time at your venue.

The best photographs are candid, so try to have as many unposed photographs taken as possible. My favorite wedding shots are from my reception where guests, and myself and the groom, are laughing and having a great time. These are the memories you want to have for the rest of your married life!

When you are going to get married, try to book your wedding venue at least several months, or a year or two, in advance. If you wait until last minute, the venue may not have any openings and you will have to scramble to find a place that will host your wedding reception on short notice.

When you are planning your wedding, and you just don't have the time to spend on every little detail, consider hiring a wedding planner to take care of those things for you. A wedding planner doesn't have to plan the entire affair for you, and most would be happy to take on fewer tasks for a lesser fee and the ability to handle other jobs alongside your wedding.

Maintain an online event itinerary for all your wedding guests, so they know the exact day and time everything is scheduled. Inform people of events, like rehearsals, that they are required to attend, so they will be where they are supposed to be at the scheduled time.

In order to prevent excessive stress during the months before the wedding, ensure you have allowed plenty of time to plan the wedding. It takes a lot of time to interview and select florists, photographers, and caterers, etc. In general, the larger the wedding, the more time you will need to make sure everything turns out perfectly on your wedding day.

At a wedding, I'm saying the actual wedding and not the after party, do not get too intoxicated! Otherwise, you could embarrass the bride, groom and their entire families! If you are the bride and you get too drunk, well Americas Funniest Videos will be seeing a submission from someone at that wedding!

You may want to assess what kind of dress you want in your wedding. You can keep it super formal for a traditional look, semi-formal for more comfort, or casual for outdoor weddings or theme weddings. Weigh your options and make sure it is what you really want for your big day.

If you have a huge list of wedding invitations to write out, do not do them all in one sitting. Make sure to make time to break them up over a few days. If you do too many in one day, then the writing on the last ones will start to look pretty bad.

Your wedding should be a reflection of you as individuals and you as a couple. If you use the advice given to you in this article, you will be able to plan the wedding of your dreams and do it within your budget as well.
